The Badong Yangtze River Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Yangtze River in Badong County, Hubei, China. Completed in July 2004, it carries 4 lanes of traffic on China National Highway 209.[1] The bridge's highest tower measures 218 metres (715 ft) and the bridge has a main span of 388 metres (1,273 ft).[2] The bridge was constructed 147 metres (482 ft) above the original river however the reservoir created by the Three Gorges Dam has increased the height of the water below the bridge and the clearanace is vastly reduced.
